Internet of Things and Smart City, by Mr. Israel Ronn

General Overview
Recently we are witnessing a growing interest in the Internet of things which is perceived, rightly, as the next step in the development of global network connectivity. The Internet of things concept is the third phase of the network following Web1.0 (Content consumption) and Web2.0 (Social networking). The idea of global interconnectedness of various smart devices ranging from sensors through automated physical devices to complex industrial systems holds tremendous potential for new ideas and initiatives which may change our lives radically.
With the availability of Internet of things (IOT) technologies and proper communication infrastructure, “Smart city” solutions are becoming a major mean in the process of addressing future urban challenges. The “Technology fusion” nature of the smart city environments opens the gate to a vast number of opportunities and technological innovation.

The Seminar
The proposed seminar is planned to be a combined IOT and Smart city seminar allowing its participants to deeply understand the Internet of things and then explore the specific case of smart city. The seminar will describe a comprehensive picture of the IOT world and deeply cover key technologies, major communication issues, key markets, vertical industries, technology trends, market trends, market drivers, market forecasts, value chain and key stakeholders. The seminar will also deal with the different challenges faced by the industry. Main attention will also be given to the range of current and future applications.
The Smart city part of the seminar will come after the IOT part and based on the knowledge acquired. This part will include a deep journey into the smart city technology and management fusion and into the main Smart city sub industries such as intelligent transportation, safe city, e-government, smart utilities and more. For each such industry a market and technology review will be presented to the seminar participants. Special attention will be given to the evolution of multi domain architectures and their associated information analysis.
The seminar will be conducted as a 2 days seminar. It will be presented as a series of frontal presentations associated with case studies and participants’ activities such as open debates, group discussions and industry challenges simulations of both products and business issues.
